Last month, in Bogalusa Lousiana, one Christopher Carnagie witnessed a US military member being told by the clerk at a truck stop that they "don't serve his kind" and being pointed to the door.

Apparently, the same thing has happened in Modesto, California not far from where I live.
According to a posting on Facebook:
If you're wondering what AMR is, I'm going to assume it is American Medical Response, a fixture here in this area of the Central Valley. Well, if I was with AMR, I'd be taking my time responding at any emergencies at this site involving the staff or owners. Thank God the company I work for is no longer partnered with Chevron, otherwise I'd have a hard time going to work on their equipment. As it is, I buy on average 100 gallons of fuel from Chevron each week. I guess I should say, "I used to". Good thing the company fuel card works at just about any fuel station, including those at Safeway (chain grocery store).
On Facebook, Mojo Roberts is stating that a protest is already under way.
The protest already has a Facebook page. And some fools have already jumped into the fray, so if you're up for some verbal sparring, there's some juicy targets.
